Ellsworth Smith

My father was Donald Ellsworth Weast. I remember hearing he was named for an Ellsworth. His mother was Grace Frances Smith Weast; she was a redhead. Her father was Alfred Smitha and her mother was Lora Whitbeck Weast; she was a redhead. My father (and all his siblings were) was a redhead and was called "Red." Is there a connection???

I believe the name is Walter

I believe the name is Walter W. Smith. He was my grandfather.

Hi Eric, My granddad, Walter

Hi Eric,
My granddad, Walter W. Smith of Gillett, has his name shown on his birth cerrtificate as William Walter Smith. His oldest son, when he went to file for Social Security had a problem ... only to find, when his birth certificate was finally located, that the name he had been using all his life as his first name, was actually his MIDDLE name!
So it goes .....
